One thing having a black cat has taught me is that black cats can be hard to photograph. Unless you catch them from the right angle in the right light (as in last week’s example), they can easily turn into silhouettes with eyes. That’s sorta happening in this picture. His right ear is missing from the shot, blending almost entirely into his head. Fortunately he was reclining on a pillow, so the shadow creates an ear that would otherwise be invisible.
I blogged this photo at least in part as a reminder that photography doesn’t have to be all about expensive cameras and fancy lenses. Nor does it have to be about portfolio-worthy masterpieces. The technical quality here isn’t great. But I love the moment it records.
